Hi all,

Not sure if anybody has posted this(somebody *may* have posted this
before) but I am going ahead. This is also from "The History of Cricket",
by Trevor Bailey. It is the obituary that started the ashes!

                       WHICH DIED AT THE OVAL            

                                  O N

                           29th August 1882,
             Deeply lamented by a large circle of sorrowing
                       friends and acquaintances.

                                R. I. P.

        N.B -- The body will be cremated, and the ashes
                         taken to Australia.

Take care,
